There's nothing more tacky and humiliating than pimping your own wares. Despite rampant rumors to the contrary, I'm a modest and humble person with a disdain for ostentatious proclivities.
BUT I'm not so humble that I wouldn't pimp in desperation. I'd rather make a fool of myself on a public blog than wear an advertisement sign in the Walmart parking lot.
So, what the heck am I talking about?
I just opened a new Zazzle store called Halloween Haven
I already have two other Zazzle stores (links are somewhere on my sidebar). They are large and cluttered with items. I thought about closing them but - incredibly - I still sell things from each of them, almost every day.
Zazzle sellers can have as many stores as they want. I know some who have a dozen. I'm not in it for the money (I only get a 12 per cent commission for each item I sell). I love the creative aspect of designing these items. It's a pleasant pastime.
I consider Halloween Haven to be a small boutique. I created it on the spur of the moment and designed over 250 items in the span of a week. I plan to add a lot more items as the fall season progresses.
Since Halloween is my favorite time of year, I wanted to have a store solely dedicated to selling Halloween-oriented items ( the Halloween spirit lives all year long).
Here is a haphazard (small) sample of my available items.
I tried to incorporate old-fashioned traditional Halloween designs, which are my favorites.
Posters and Plaques
Greeting Cards and Stickers
(I also put the link on my sidebar)
Since this post is essentially an advertisement, I've decided to suspend comments. Cheers, Jon
